Sure, it's awesome that she can juggle, but more importantly why is she at THAT concert.

Peace Out,

No stress here

As I was reading the article, 6 Slacker Behaviors That Science Says Are Good For You, on cracked.com. I didn't find any of them to be relatable to me, until I got to #1 and #2. WOW! These two hit close to home...like smack dab on my front porch (if I had a front porch).

Here they are:
#2. Wasting Your Life on the Internet May Stave Off Dementia

It only seems logical that spending hours upon hours surfing the abyss of the Internet will eventually destroy your brain. Five minutes of reading YouTube comments alone should probably wipe out your capacity to do long division without a calculator.

The logic behind this assumption seems sound; it's like when you watch trashy television, right? Your brain is less engaged than if you were, say, reading a book or doing a crossword puzzle. And because you're not exercising your brain muscles, they must be atrophying.

Actually, no. Because some science guys are beginning to find out that those hours of surfing the interwebs might actually be making us smarter.

I spend a lot of time surfing the web. My brain is over flowing with useless information. However, none if it has helped much in the trivia game of Qrank (i'll explain more save in a later blog). I guess this kind of makes me a genius...according to this article. Not only am I brilliant, but I will be a fully functioning 100 year old lady.
#1. Spoiling Yourself Can Fight Stress

Considering all the negative effects of stress, from erectile dysfunction to heart disease, it's no wonder stress.org calls it America's number one problem. It definitely sounds like we're not stressing out as much as we should about this whole stress issue.

Nothing on this list will reduce stress more efficiently than enjoying all those dirty pleasures everyone says you shouldn't enjoy. An Australian study discovered that skipping work or buying that solid gold ice cream scooper is exactly the kind of irresponsible behavior that keeps you stress-free, happy and healthy. Almost everyone engages in this behavior and it seems to be the best way to release steam.

As most of my friends and family know, I like...no make that LOVE...to buy things. Which explains the minimal amount of stress that I have in my life. I'm not saying I don't stress because I definitely do. My stress is just more come and go. Like, every quarter when I have to pay taxes or during the summer/holidays when most of my clients are traveling leaving me with a sad and lonely bank account. Maybe, my lack of stress is due to my love of shopping. On that note, Nordstroms is having their big anniversary sale. See y'all there tomorrow!

Peace Out,

Gymnast to Crossfitter

The more I get into crossfit, the more I realize how much I miss gymnastics. If I knew that my body would hold up, I'd hop in a class right now. However, there is a reason that for most of us our gymnastics career ends at 18. If you're lucky, maybe 22. Crossfit allows me to tap into some of those skills. As the sport of Crossfit grows, it provides me with a forum to compete at a higher level. 2011 Games here I come!

This is a clip from one of my favorite movies. It's pretty much the best gymnastics movie ever.

Peace Out,

YouTube Tuesday

This is not technically a YouTube video, but it is a MUST SEE. I love this sport. Since graduating from high school and leaving behind gymnastics, I have been in search of a new sport. I tried the running thing and the triathlon thing and even duathlons. I even considered indoor soccer, flag football and even softball. I just wanted to compete. My search is over. This is it! I've got my eye on the prize....2011 Crossfit Games.

I'm taking it back to 1988 with this week's Music Monday. I was a measly 6 year old with an impeccable taste in music. I loved this song and the video. There may even be a cassette tape of me singing this very song in a landfill somewhere. If you didn't pick up on this by now (based on previous music blogs), it was obvious there was no parental control on our TV. I definitely watched my fair share of MTV. Yes, I did watch MTV at the age of 6....maybe even younger.

This week's pick is "Parents Just Don't Understand" by DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince.

Peace Out,

I'm a sucker for animal videos. Watch this turtle shake his...or her...ASS.

With moves like that, it's definitely a she!

Music Monday

Flashback July continues with this wonderful pick from 1993. My neighbor Tori and I used to make up dances to all of their songs and perform them in my front yard for all the world to see. Ok. Maybe not the world, just the neighborhood.

Peace Out,

I'll help you waste your day away.

Here is a blog that all of you should follow:

Her blogs are laugh out loud funny. (not quite as funny as my YouTube Tuesday fart blog though) Her recent blog is probably my favorite. I can somewhat relate....unfortunately, I can relate to most of her blogs. Like, "This Is Why I Will Never Be An Adult.

YouTube Tuesday: This is a really serious matter....

FARTS! I don't care who you are or what you are, but farts are FUNNY. I'd like to dedicate this blog to my rootin' tootin' friend, Melisa Ann. We both share a fond love for fart noises.....cause they are HILARIOUS.

This video never gets old and should be watched everyday. I break out in a sweat every time I watch b/c I am laughing so hard.... it's great ab workout too. I hope you all enjoy, and I do not apologize if this offends anyone....get over it.

My favorite is "Mustache Fart."

Peace Out,

Music Monday...on Tuesday

So, I'm a little off on my blogs because of the holiday. I am back on it now! This week's pick is courtesy of the year 1990. II present to you, Step by Step by the New Kids On The Block. In my opinion (which does matter), this is the BEST boy band EVER.

My favorite New Kid was Joey.

Who's yours? Enjoy!

Peace Out,
